As the NBA gears up to restart play later this month, the league and players are launching numerous initiatives to ensure that the predominantly-black league uses the spotlight as a platform to promote Black Lives Matter and the ongoing struggle for racial justice across the United States. This was apparent in Tuesday evening’s NBA on TNT show, the first of several to gear up for the resumption of games, where hosts and panelists repeatedly returned to social justice themes during the show.

One of the measures is that players will be allowed to choose from a select group of social justice statements to wear on their jerseys in place of their last name during the Orlando seeding games. While we haven’t seen a formal list of which players will participate and what slogans each has chosen, Chris Haynes reported during Tuesday’s show that Ivica Zubac is among a number of players who have already determined what slogan they will wear on their jersey in Orlando. The Clippers center has chosen “ENOUGH” for his jersey.
